Capacity building in the light of contextualization/localization

Project: Learning ProjectTalent Development 22nd August 2017

TALENT DEVELOPMENT: Facilitated a learning session in Jordan to showcase the Talent Development project’s outcome on “contextualization”

The aim of the session is to learn from Talent Development, and other capacity building programmes, experiences how capacity building programmes can be contextualized. The session was designed with key debate based on following three key statements:

1) Contextualization is not just about local issues but also global trends, and accelerates local/global cooperation.

2) The humanitarian operating environment is diverse and constantly changing so standardized humanitarian charter & principles cannot be implemented.

3) There is not only one local context: contextualisation requires choosing between different local norms and cultures.
